I am a Research Fellow at the Center for Applied Marine Sciences, with a broad background in marine ecology, environmental geochemistry, and social/anthropological research, and specific training and expertise in environmental sampling and data analysis. I utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to address pressing environmental questions, and have a strong record of professional collaboration with industry and NGOs.
